Lakmé Fashion Week and the very best it has to offer

By PREETI SINGH | | 20 August, 2016
With the Lakmé Fashion Week just around the corner, leading designers are preparing themselves to showcase the very best of their recent work. Some top names from the world of fashion are on the list of LFW participants this season. Preeti Singh presents a roundup.


Celebrated designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee known for his deep-rooted ethnic designs returns to the very stage where he made his debut, but this time as the Lakmé Grand Finale Designer. The audience will be in for a spectacular show as his collection will be inspired by Lakmé’s beauty statement for the season – “Illuminate,” a theme that is often mirrored in a signature Sabyasachi design.


Noted designer Manish Malhotra’s new collection spotlights Indian craftsmanship combined with modern silhouettes. The fashion house will showcase its signature embroidery work with textured colours meshing with subtle shimmer and sparkle. One can expect statement ensembles and handcrafted evening wear that will make a trousseau special for every moment surrounding a wedding.  


Tahiliani collection does away with the distinction, revealing clothes that transform into a breathtaking aria of drama and sensuality. Inspired by noted sculptor Mrinalini Mukherjee’s life size hemp and cast bronze sculptures, the collections are of a global appeal that lends itself to kurtas, kaftans, tunics and shift dresses. Enhanced by aari, resham, and brush embroidery and embellished with resham threads, and antique gold sequins.


India’s leading labels such as Sanjay Garg from Delhi will be showcasing his outfits this year. Having committed to working with handlooms and crafts of the country, Garg this LFW has been promoting Indian textiles for the designer retail market in line to link handlooms with fashion design and create premium quality modern products for the evolving consumer market.
